The last Friday of the month, come in make yourself comfortable, this morning we have espresso, and biscotti.
We observed at the start of the 12 Hours of Sebring, the Pugs looked fast from the get go, and they were! While the BMW's sent a clear message from the outset in the GT class. Would have been nice to see Corvette win, but a 3-4 finish behind the BMW's is palatable for the time being. The race results, and some great photography...here.
In case you missed this video on the Corvette racing engine, notice the intake restrictors (28mm)...here.

The other day we were reading from an auto pundit, their thoughts that they drive a boring car, yes one of those that is usually considered some sort of appliance. Which got us thinking, if one is a true aficionado/gear head/passionate how can you drive an appliance?
From our perspective, you always need a vehicle that ignites the passion, even in our climate, or is it that we always had vehicles that ignite our passions, and when a vehicle is not enough, there are motorcycles to stimulate the adrenalin. At the same time, it takes a wide spectrum of individuals to make it interesting, and at times a fascinating automotive experience.
In our case we make it a point to drive vehicles that keep our passions alive!
